After having to abort downloading files via ftp, restarting sysinst
(without rebooting) and choosing the option to reinstall tar files 
fails during some checks.

Unmounting /mnt/usr then /mnt before running sysinst makes everything
work fine.  Perhaps sysinst should do the same thing before the checks?

During an install, choose to get files via ftp.
Hit ^C in the middle of a transfer.
At the shell prompt, run sysinst.
Choose the option to reinstall the tar files.
Watch it do some checks that fail.
